Call MIA first for advice on Minor Injuries

NHS Lothian is asking anyone with a minor injury to Call MIA first to get advice about minor injuries quickly and safely.

Call MIA is an online video consultation service for patients aged 8 years and over who have an injury less than 14 days old. It is carried out by a qualified Nurse Practitioner who can provide advice in minutes on injuries including:

  • strains, sprains and suspected broken bones of arms and legs
  • wounds and minor burns
  • minor bumps to head and face
  • simple eye injuries
  • insect bites and stings

A lot of minor injuries can be treated from the comfort of your own home or with the help of a local pharmacist. If you do need to be examined in person, Call MIA will arrange a suitable appointment at a minor injuries service so you don’t need to wait when you attend.

To arrange an appointment call 111 between 8am and 8pm 7 days a week.

If your minor injury is over 14 days old, please contact your local GP. Children aged 11 years and under should attend one of the services at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children or St John’s Hospital.
